Is someone in your family comfortable with computers, but maybe not quite right for college? Or do they worry a four-year degree is more likely to put them into debt than into a job?
Do you have a college-bound high schooler who could use a shot in the arm confidence wise, and maybe an achievable goal that might help them get a good part-time job in college?
Are you wishing you had a job working with computers; a burgeoning field?
Or, are you knowledgeable about computers but do not have anything in your record proving what you know?
Comptia is an Information Technology industry trade association. It offers a variety of computer-knowledge certifications such as the basic A+, Network+ and Security+.
Many starter jobs in IT, such as help desk, repair technician, or printer technician, require a Comptia A+ Certification.
To obtain one of these certifications requires a test taken at a Pearson Testing Center.
There are many paths to the first A+ certification. You can begin by going to Comptia’s site and seeing the objectives that are used for the two A+ required tests, the 801 and 802 tests.
There are a variety of ways to learn the material needed to pass the tests. Some are even free.
